me realize that comedians can be genius. >> i'm going to spend some time tonight talking about the next it is friday, march 25th. right now on "first look" the manhunt continues as authorities conduct more raids overnight in connection to the terror attacks and plus a new plot foiled. the mud slinging between donald trump and ted cruz gets more personal. >> donald, you're a sniveling coward and leave heidi the hell alone. march madness is in full swing. and plus, pope francis does washing of the feet. the passing of a comic ge hillary clinton lights up late night. "first look" starts right now. good morning to you on this good friday. thanks for joining us today.
i'm betty nguyen. new developments overnight, seven people have been arrested in the belgium raids. right now their identities are unknown and the roles in the attacks are unclear. however, the third suspect in the airport attack on the right wearing a light colored coat and had is still at large. meanwhile, in paris, authorities have made a major arrest of a suspect who was in the advanced stage of a terror plot. so far there is no evidence linking that man a french national to the attacks in brussels or paris. we are learning more about the el bakraoui brothers involved in tuesday's attack. and just what u.s. counterterrorism authorities knew about him. claudio lavagna is live in brussels. what's the latest there? >> reporter: good morning. yes, the manhunt on the terrorists on the loose is still on. well, we don't know whether the man in the hat that was pictured alongside the two terrorists was among them. we don't know whether that is --
he is the only attacker unaccounted for in the last 24 hours authorities have confirmed they believe this was another man with the attacker that detonated the explosive in the metro station. we don't know if the second attacker there died in the explosion or whether he got away as well. in the meantime, we learned more details about what the brothers el bakraoui were up to before they participated in the attack on tuesday. well, they're accused by authorities of planting a hidden camera in front of the head of the nuclear research program here in belgium. possibly with the intention of kidnapping him or a member of his family to get access to radioactive material to build maybe a dirty bomb. what's even more shocking is that the belgian authorities have admitted that they knew that the two brothers had links with terrorism for a while now and yet, they were allowed, able, to walk into an airport and a packed metro station with luggages packed with explosives. now, we know today that john
kerry is here. he's here to formally express his -- the united states' sympathy to belgium. but we don't know if he's going to express formally his concern about how the belgian authorities have dealt with this threat. betty? >> a lot of questions about how the authorities department with this and what they knew before hand and why they didn't act on that information. thank you, claudio. the state department says there is no credible evidence that suggests americans were targeted in the attacks and so far no reports of americans among the casualties, although 12 american citizens were injured. one american couple is still missing. justin and stephanie shults were dropping off stephanie's mother at the airport when it happened. she is safe, but no one has heard from justin and stephanie since the attack. and the brothers fit an increasing pattern -- families with terror ties. >> reporter: the brothers turned
suicide bombers at the brussels airport and subway station are sickening nothing new. the attack on the french magazine "charlie hebdo" last year involved two brothers. the boston bombing carried out by the tsarnaevs were carried out by two brothers. family and friends were recruited on the street corners in the molenbeek district of brussels. >> it's like a gang you can't leave. >> yes, they will kill if you if you leave, he said. salah abdeslam allegedly joined isis with his brother. many have isis backgrounds. drugs were sold here and he the man was a suicide bomber in paris.
the officials are fearing another attack. keir simmons, nbc news, brussels. the race for president getting even more personal on the republican side. the war of words has take an nasty turn into a war over wives. this as a new poll shows donald trump having trouble with female voters. nbc's hallie jackson reports. >> reporter: a single retweet re-igniting the fight between the front-runners donald trump showing this photo to his 7 million followers. his wife, side by side with ted cruz's with the phrase, the images are worth a thousand words. >> donald, you're a sniveling coward, leave heidi the hell alone. >> you're going to support him as a nominee? >> gaming to beat him. >> you said he's a coward, will joup port him? >> donald trump will not be the nominee, because he's a train wreck. >> reporter: cruz taking his toughest tone yet. >> donald trump doesn't like
strong women. >> this is his effort to gain attention to try and stay relevant in a race he's lost and insisting trump has great relationships with women. megyn kelly asking about the tweet said seriously? nearly half of the female voters said they can't imagine picking trump and among women in the general electorate, seven in ten have a negative view of trump. >> nobody respects women more than i do. >> reporter: he's defended himself on the trail. his wife has too. >> i see him in life. he treats women the same as men. >> reporter: insults online reverberating in real life. meanwhile, hillary clinton out of the line of political fire appeared on "jimmy kimmel live" last night. they poked fun at man splaining and the advice to the -- >> it's wonderful to be here. >> hold on a second. >> already? >> you're shouting.

presidential candidates, you know, they're trying to get the highest office of the land. they're going at it over each other's wives on twitter and throwing jabs at each other. it doesn't seem real. >> you know, it certainly may be contrived but we were going to end up in some sort of argument or feud about this. donald trump says a lot of things about women that many people find reprehensible. he uses a lot of gender language, we have seen him go after megyn kelly in a way that leaves a lot of people uncertain how he talks about women. because it's about their wives it gives them a chance to sort of argue and ted cruz he may be very, very upset about this but he's not letting go of the opportunity to talk about how he's winning in certain states and saying, look, maybe he's afraid of me. maybe him making him nervous. he's using it to play into his own political attacks as well. >> there's a new poll that shows
trump is having trouble with female voters and cruz is capitalizing on this with the war of words over wives. >> i think this shines a light on heidi cruz, a very successful woman in her own right. and their partnership -- it's pretty affectionate. i think it does make a lot of republican women say you know, if she says he's our guy, i think she might be right. one of our colleagues was at an event with heidi cruz last night. people turned to her after heidi spoke and said, why isn't she running? that's the kind of thing to hear when appealing to women. that will definitely help ted cruz. >> donald trump may not be so happy that all of this came about as heidi cruz going to shoot up in the ranks because of all this. people have their eye on her. she's well-spoken. thank you. one man's video rental past comes back to haunt him. plus from love at first sight to love at first smell? a different take on finding the one.
